“Place to unwind”
Reviewed August 27, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

What a lovely place! We had such a great and relaxing time! We have been looking for a nice little place and found exactly what we wanted. Wendy and Dave are brilliant hosts, they leave you in peace if you just want to relax but at the same time are always there to help if you need anything. Gite is immaculate, views are amazing and swimming pool is very inviting. A welcome pack was a very nice touch and is much more than anyone needs to start a holiday. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to relax and we would definitely be back!
Thank you Wendy and Dave!
Regards,
Larysa, Greg and Charlie

“Perfect relaxing holiday with the most fantastic views and beautiful private heated pool”
Reviewed July 17, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We have just got back from the most perfect week away staying at this beautiful gite in Edon. The gite is old and charming but very clean and is equipped with everything you need. The views are truly amazing, and span the Charente and the Dordogne regions. The private heated pool is stunning with more breathtaking views and amazing sunsets. When we could tear ourselves away from the pool, there were plenty of beautiful places to visit near by and there is a very convenient supermarket in the local village.

Dave and Wendy were the perfect hosts - very friendly and relaxed and we loved their two adorable dogs. We had the most wonderful holiday and hope to return soon.

“Gite with amazing views”
Reviewed September 12, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The views from the Gite are amazing, at the front you look over Charente and at the rear you look into the Dordogne.
The owners Dave & Wendy make you feel most welcome and have put quite a bit of thought into their welcome pack which was the best we have experienced in 23 years of Gite holidays. The Gite is well equiped and fitted out and the barbeque is the cleanist I have come across at any Gite.
We just went there to chill out so can't comment on attractions although the swimming pool on site is an attractive proposition.
If you want to chill out then this is the place to go.

“Excellent gite with breathtaking view”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Fantastic accommodation. The gite was very clean and had all the things we needed for our stay. The swimming pool was excellent and we had a breathtaking view when we were swimming. Dave and Wendy were fantastic hosts. They lived next door and always there when you needed them, but we felt as if we had the whole place to ourselves. The gite had a terrace at the front where you could look out on the chateau and beautiful landscape and sunset in the evenings or we would use the terras at the back of the gite where there was a BBQ area. Our dog Lola had a lovely time running around in the garden and even had a friend in Archie, Dave and Wendy's dog, who often came to say hello, which our daughter loved. All in all, we had a fantastic week and we will definitely return one day. Highly recommended

“Fantastic holiday with great accomodation and heated pool”
Reviewed August 13, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Haute Faye, the house was well equipped (great welcome pack on arrival) the pool was nicely situated, heated and tended so we didn't have to do a thing. Wendy and Dave were great hosts, very unobtrusive but available if needed. Fabulous site with long reaching views to the surrounding areas including the chateau at Villeboise. Lovely woodland walks from the house. Great bbq area. A very relaxing holiday.

“Beautiful place to stay, everything we'd hoped for and more”
Reviewed August 9, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed here for a week and wished it was longer. The cottage was spacious,clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need there. We had no real desire to go out and about too much as it was lovely just to relax in the gardens or by the pool which was clean, warm and well maintained. The best part though was just to relax and enjoy the wonderful views

“Relax and unwind ”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Lucky to find such a lovely setting with private pool and stunning views. The Gite is spacious and well furnished with all amenities. Leather armchairs and sofa, wood burning stove and well equipped kitchen.

We've spent a week here unwinding in the sunshine visiting the picturesque Dordogne and enjoying French hospitality.

Wendy and Dave make perfect hosts and we felt at home from day one.

If you're looking for a relaxing break this is the place to come to.
